Thank God UK is a Nike school

You’re looking at adidas’ special edition “Impact Camo” jerseys, which the above schools will wear all through March. From the sleeves to the atrocious camo shorts and trim, it’s just…bad.

They’re all hideous, but if I were a Notre Dame fan, I’d riot.

    Let’s just don’t say anything and let them go out there and wear these PJs. We’ll act like we don’t notice how bad they look. 20 years from now they will look back and say, “why didn’t anyone tells us how bad we looked”.

    God must be a Nike fan. Whoever designed this mess & the person that gave the green light to use this mess should all be waterboarded at a CIA black site; if not for anything, making us have to see this mess on TV. Someone at Adidas seriously needs to be fired. Adidas should stick with soccer stuff.

    Nike & Under Armour exec’s must be jumping up & down with joy.

    I definitely have some Victoria’s Secret pjs that resemble these unis. Poor guys look miserable just modeling them. The camo short sleeves are god awful, the Louisville “red” seems to be an attempt to go back to last year’s orange highlighter color, and poor Notre Dame! PASTEL green!!?? They could have at least used darker green as the primary color & then trimmed it out with the brighter green. WTF was Adidas thinking? FAIL!!! Couldn’t have happened to a better group of schools!! Hahahahahahaha

    On a brighter side, I’ll bet these uniforms inspire some great signs at tourny games! and some hilarious trash talk on the court!! LOL

Beat them in the FINAL FOUR, when it counts, for our 8th NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Combined titles of those 3 teams in the past 26 years of my ENTIRE life. 0. Kentucky 3. God awful uniforms with sleeves, well you got us beat there…

    68 you mad bro? I’d be mad too if I had to look at my team (I’m sure yours is the dirty birds) in these atrocious things while the rest of the country laughs at them. We didn’t like the denim so “hypocrites” doesn’t exactly work here. Unfortunately for you, the denim uniforms are still better than these!

  75. 68, I didn’t care for the denim, but there is NO WAY that they were as bad as these, especially the Baylor neon highlighter yellow and the Notre Dame mint green.

    I mostly didn’t like the denim because I don’t like anyone messing with the traditional colors like all the pro teams do these days when a lot of franchises change team colors every other year to sell more merchandise.

    Looks like something they’d wear to a Gay Pride Event (except for the “Pride” part). Damn I thought last year’s prison orange monstrosites were bad, but these are uber hideous – like mama dressed’em to strip away any last bit of masculinity.

    Any team wearing one of those uniforms should only be allowed to play another team wearing one of them…and both teams should be forced to wear protective dark tinited sun glasses.

    How could you “guard your yard” with all that eye crossing color on the court.
